mad swirl open mic night
Join Mad Swirl this 1st Wednesday of February (aka 02.04.15) at 8:00 sharp, when we will swirl it up madly in the LIVE way that we do every month now for OVER 10 years! This month we will be featuring genius guitarist and swirlin' songwriter David Crandall!
After our feature set we urge you stick around to get yourself a spot on our list... first come, first on the list! Which means... get there early!
Come one, come all! Mad poets, musicians, actors, singers, circus freaks and Elvis impersonators... come-n-strut-yo-stuff. Come to participate. Come to appreciate. Come to be a part of this collective creative love child we affectionately call Mad Swirl.
AND, as you may or may not know, every 1st Wednesday we get all giddy with the swirlin' madness. Here's who we will be featuring next month:
March: Harry McNabb
April: Merlin the Magical One
May: Opalina Salas, Maggie Smith, Desmene Statum
June: Brendan McCormack
July: Johny Kelly & Stefan Prigmore
notes of gratitude to ALL the mad ones!
When we invited longtime Contributing Poet to join us as our feature, we knew we'd be in for a treat. Just how big of a treat this Louisiana poet would bring was what we didn't know. Turns out, it was a heapin' helpin' of some delicious poetry! Missed it? Then check out of UStream feed here!
Thanks to ALL the wonderful poets and musicians who shared their words, their verses and their fine light with us. It truly was a fine night to be alive and in our Mad Swirl world. In case you missed this Mad action, here is the line-up of who was who…

Merlin the Magical One
HUGE thanks to Swirve (Chris Curiel & Gerard Bendiks) for keeping the beat til the wee hours of the night. We got taken to another dimension of time and space on the wings of their jazzy madness!
And as always, big THANKS to the patron saint of the loco local mad ones, Kevin, owner of Absinthe Lounge, who has given 120 reasons to give him all the mad props and love that we do!
And finally we would like to thank ALL of you who freely shared their hand claps, finger-snaps, hoots and howls with all the mad ones who got up on this sacred mad swirlin' mic.
We look forward to ALL the m-adventures to come! Stay tuned...
